This is a brand new post in the Shop Me Chic collection!!
Colour Me Chic will take a different colour and pick the very best fashion, accessories and beauty products in that particular colour.
Today, we’re colouring your world turquoise!!
The gemstone turquoise represents the star sign Sagittarius. The phrase “The Turquoise” refers to the waters of the Caribbean. In holistic medicine, the colour turquoise purportedly has a calming effect on patients. And the colour turquoise plays an important role in the Shop Me Chic logo.
Who knew this gorgeous little colour had so many purposes?! Now let’s put it to good use the best way we know how…
OPI Nail Lacquer ’Fly’ by Nicki Minaj from Salon Style ($16.96)
MAC ‘Aquadisiac’ Eye Shadow ($33.00)
Illamasqua ‘Strike’ Nail Varnish (approx $21.43)
Turquoise is such a striking colour that really pops on nails and eyes. And if you’re feeling particularly daring – Illamasqua also does a turquoise lipstick. Would you??
Shabby Sisters ‘Turq Drop’ Earrings ($50.00)
Wild Bling ‘Lucite Crystal Choker’ ($49.00)
Luxe by Lulu ‘Cara’ Bracelet from the Amalfi Collection ($13.20)
It’s so easy – and fun – to rock super bright turquoise jewellery. And it was for this very reason I chose more subdued pieces, with the exception of the amazing Wild Bling choker, which I would save for weekend fun. The more understated pieces can be worn to work…as well as on the weekend.
Agent Ninetynine Slouchy Beanie from General Pants ($19.95)
Billabong Beanie Band from SurfStitch ($19.99)
NewUrban Mia Felt Fedora Hat (approx $68.75)
A fun and unexpected way to incorporate turquoise into your outfit is with headwear. A beanie, a headband or a hat…pop it on your head for a pop of colour!!
Forver New ‘Maley Paper Bag Short’ ($59.99)
ASOS Mini Dress With Contrast Piping ($58.00)
Sportsgirl ‘Cocoon Coat’ ($169.95)
Turquoise is one of the beautiful jewel tones hitting stores this winter and here are three different ways to incorporate this colour into your wardrobe. Such a gem of a colour!!
Tony Bianco ‘Fryer’ Heel ($169.95)
Wittner ‘Lee Lee’ Ballet Flat ($99.95)
Zu ‘Empress’ Heel ($150.00)
I love a coloured shoe to add a point of interest to an outfit. These gorgeous heels would be the ultimate exclamation point at the end of a fashion sentence…!!
ASOS Paul’s Boutique Satchel ($115.99)
Forever New ‘Sigourney’ Clutch ($24.99)
Colette Accessories ‘Minnie Square Turnlock Crossbody’ ($29.95)
And finally grab the finishing touch to your outfit before you head out the door – a lovely turquoise bag to carry you through Winter.
There you have it ladies. Are you all turquoised out now? No? Good!! Make sure you get into one of the most beautiful colours of the season.
